Republicans in the House and Senate have introduced bills that would allow people who undergo “gender transition” (there's no such thing, but that’s another issue) surgeries as minors to sue medical providers for damages if they later regret it. The bills would also bar federal laws that force doctors to provide such surgeries and prohibit federal funds from going to states that do so.

Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton explained, "Gender-transition procedures aren’t safe or appropriate for children. Unfortunately, radical doctors in the United States perform dangerous, experimental, and even sterilizing gender-transition procedures on young kids, who cannot even provide informed consent. Our bill allows children who grow up to regret these procedures to sue for damages. Any doctor who performs these irresponsible procedures on kids should pay,"

Of course, the push by the Biden Administration and many school officials and trans activists to block parents from having any say over whether their kids undergo these surgeries deprives them of the traditional protection by the only people who are looking out for their interests without ulterior motives. They’ve swiftly “transitioned” from asking us to show tolerance and compassion for gender-confused minors to separating them from their parents and pressuring them to agree to dangerous, life-altering drugs and surgery, administered either by quack doctors playing God or reluctant doctors being forced to do it.

These bills have no chance of getting through the current House or Senate, since the Democrats have adopted unfettered abortion and mutilation of children as their two tent-pole issues. But maybe that will soon change.

In the meantime, for anyone who might be working up a furious tweet over this story or claim that gender transition surgery is a wonderful, helpful “best solution” in all cases, I’ll direct you to this very disturbing story from the New York Post. They talked to teenagers who felt extreme media, political and peer pressure to believe they needed these procedures and who are now trying to “detransition” after suffering a living nightmare and damage to their bodies that can never be undone. As one put it, “I was failed by the system. I literally lost organs.”

By the way, it also quotes a clinical psychologist who is very concerned that kids are being pressured and rushed into irreversible medical procedures instead of first addressing personal or mental health factors. And before she gets branded as a transphobe, it should be noted that she’s a transgender woman herself.

    How in the world would doctors ever be "forced" to perform these surgeries? This isn't simply performing a facelift or removing a gall bladder. The drug treatment and surgery must be hugely complicated.

    Hopefully this bill can pass after Republicans take control of Congress. Then physicians should be wary of violating the rights of children.

    Why can’t we copy and paste or just copy and send some of your articles to people. I would love to send your column on transgender kids later regretting the procedure. I think you have such common sense and a way with words I can’t compete with. Please let your works have that little box with the little line through it so we can send them to different people. Thanks. Patricia Raduziner. P S I have 2 granddaughters who have been brainwashed.

    When reading about doctors performing transgender surgeries, I can't help but think of the experimental surgeries performed on children by Dr. Mengele and his Nazi team. It makes me shiver.

    If an anorexic, bulimic 5’ 7” 14 year old weighing 85 pounds came to a doctor wanting surgery to help them lose weight what would the doctor do? Would he suggest counseling? Would his first option be to say, “We can do surgery to help you reach the weight you believe will solve your image problems. Our scheduler will help you set up appointments you will need to get ready and the nurse will explain recovery time.” If they treat them like a transgender doctor does, they set up the appointments.

    With their actions regarding everything from the release of felons to BLM violence to anti-Roe decision, the democrats are doing everything they have accused Trump of. Of course, that is their modus, distract and lie. Like the group running pro Abrams ads in Georgia. They call themselves One Georgia but are more appropriately blue Georgia. Officers are democrat activists from DC.
